this is r.t. coming to you live from moscow hello and welcome to the program latin america is an awful after several european countries allegedly denied airspace to the believe in president's plane the flight was forced to divert to again no way it was done searched and made room as a whistleblower edward snowden was on board furious leaders are vowing a response calling the incident humiliating and offensive. but libya says that they did coordinate the flight plan with european officials prior to taking off from moscow and then all of a sudden mid-flight several e.u. states banned them from entering their territory and this is despite the fact that the needed to refuel along the way and it seems that at this point we began having technical problems with the plane and related with the fuel we found

a transcript of what seems to be a recording of the conversation between the bolivian pilots and the air traffic controller at the airport in vienna in austria let's listen in do you need any assistance not at this moment we need to land because we cannot get a correct indication of the fuel level we need to land after the plane landed in austria a local authorities actually searched it and looking for snowden on board although they themselves say that they were allowed to do so by authorities but even when they did they didn't find the former n.s.a. contractor on that plane it still took quite a few hours for the believe in president to continue his trip back home since the e.u. still wouldn't give them the proper airspace cord or the proper route to continue their flight now bolivia call this an act of aggression violating all international laws especially the fact that the president's plane was searched this is totally unprecedented in the approach to how to deal with airplanes belonging to heads of
10:03 am
states and the ability also claims that this whole operation was planned and organized by washington there's been also a massive reaction in latin america with cuba and ecuador saying that it's a massive offense not only against believe here but all countries in the region who and argentina are calling for an emergency summit a continental style and for all the local countries to discuss this incident and think about reaction you know one of the reasons why they may have thought that snowden was on board that plane is. because of the bolivian president told earlier exclusively to r.t. that his country was ready to provide political asylum to snowden why not of course the situation is far from ideal his case is constantly discussed on an international level bolivia is ready to give political asylum to the people who expose spying so to speak basically for the former n.s.a. contractor this there's
10:04 am
a transit limbo continues as he is still stuck inside that franzen's all actually military airport the u.s. is still calling for his extradition or moscow does say they're not planning to buy some more since they do see him as a human rights activist while passing them over to the country where they still actively use the death sentence is a possibility for russia so it's little surprise that reaction from believe there has been strong and an exclusive interview senior officials mincing that what. i think this is an unprecedented situation this goes against the practice of cooperation in coexistence between countries this goes against international conventions and treaties this goes against international law and all the rules that have been established over a long period of time this shows disrespect for other countries independence. by. the countries involved in hijacking president morales his plane and making
10:05 am
a mistake they think that others steal attack invade territories wage wars impose embargoes and go back on their own word just like they do we would like to warn the international community about catastrophic consequences of such acts as they give offense to any person or state the current policy of the usa and their allies in nato aims at ensuring their own security at the expense of somebody else's. so officials from france and spain tell a very different story though they claim the flight carrying the believin president was never denied access to that as space they say they never denied routing to the presidential plane their original flight path would have taken the jet through all strips than a chile throngs yes it's coming easily if france spain portugal and then on to canary islands for
10:06 am
a few but there is a part that the plane actually took and you can see it flying very close to the italian border and then abruptly turning back to vienna there we go so commentators say the only reasons it would change course at this point with the because of a mechanical problem being denied airspace or a need for a fueling and aviation expert cruciate things the situation around the forced landing of the believe in a president's plane has some aspects. you know it's been quite a bizarre morning really with this plane traveling out form moscow and seeming to do that dogleg over all stress going back to the. theory to refuel but also going to suggest to them that any further a space has been blocked so the aircraft can't continue until clearance is given to
10:07 am
enter for example italian airspace french airspace and of course spanish airspace so strange turn of events you know we we kind of wonder who is telling the truth here. acquittal has discovered its embassy in london has been bombed by dozens of microphones shortly after snowden's revelations that the u.s. has been spying on the european diplomats and john laughlin from the institute of diplomacy and cooperation in paris believes although the use seems to be anchored by washington's eavesdropping it's just playing out for the can wait. it's very revealing and symbolic that president morales his plane should have been forced to land in a european union country after the withdrawal of overfly rights by other european union countries because this of course shows how the european hudl jumps to the american circus masters command the european governments are very obviously under
10:08 am
the some of the americans they have shown this very flagrantly and the reason why i say it's symbolic is that it's the abuses which snowden has revealed is only one side of the coin the other side of the coin is that there has been a massive increase in cooperation in intelligence sharing between the united states and its european union allies in the last ten years and certainly since nine eleven so it's entirely appropriate if you like. the whistleblower should have been attempted to be caught by european union countries because the problem that he has revealed is concerns intelligence sharing between the european union and america as well as the increase of espionage by the american security forces france is a big forefront on the walls a rhetorical offense against washington civil then as it is officials have even
10:09 am
said a massive trade pact being negotiated by the atlantic allies could now be sunk by the revelations parties where if a national report. no lice between elyse no privileges for the ones proven false fronts has been so furious of america's in couldn't spying that its almost straightforwardly rejected the u. us years long project the world's biggest free trade zone now we have this political and diplomatic debate is it normal that one state united states with the help of the united kingdom takes the ability to spy on every communications all over the world there's a lot of people who tend to think that not normal that's not morally and politically justified according to recent leaks of the us national security agency has carried out covert surveillance on french and e.u. high ranking officials both of home and abroad monitoring millions of emails and
10:10 am
calls blogger and internet freedom fighters and mark says paes have always existed but the way the game is played has been transformed what is interesting now it's to figure that the n.s.a. doesn't spy on people only for terrorism to fight terrorism but also for political and also economical reasons because we know that they are using this spying system to help american companies stefan used to work as a journalist in the soviet union at the time of the cold war he says he has an impression that nothing has changed since then or roll most nothing. at least it was clear at that time there were two sides to lines today is not certain who is friend and who is rival yes good question if there are friends of talk true friends i'm not sure. france america's nato partner has been supporting its most controversial initiatives over the last decade sharing risks and expenses cost in
10:11 am
both money and human lives. we're asking for confirmation or if i'm asian of it so as not to prejudge it but there is already a sufficient amount of elements for us to ask for an explanation what will be the consequence and sort of course first for it to end as soon as possible i would see mediately but some doubt that france will go beyond wars in the circus ations believing that perry's who continue to dance to america's tune. we think alone should stop only goshi ations over the free trade zone but we sure he's not going to do this because his key logic is to keep good relations with the usa and this is a big problem for europe even humiliated and violated by america we still want to have special relations with this country. france has demanded a clarification from the us but has so far been denied an answer this is one of
10:12 am
thousands of cameras that we can see around paris and it can see us one the government is using for security reasons france may not be a world leader on the list of big brothers but even these has sparked a tense discussion here over freedom and privacy violation of un ordinary citizens the reaction has been more vocal when politicians and diplomats found themselves in the spotlight and of a way big surveillance system it's too early to say whether paris and washington will ever be able to swallow the spoken of contention and move on or they'll always look bad. written off. from paris. and for more on the around let's now cross live to cater for our business desk katie nice to see years so what's the situation about the moment well right now the trade deal the transatlantic deal is actually on hold for two weeks and that's because france's president francois hollande he's demanding a media explanation from the u.s.
10:13 am
over reports of spying took place on e.u. diplomats and is threatening to pull out of the billion dollar worth trade deal between the u.s. and the e.u. now reporting the german newsweekly kicked it all off just spiegel revealed that the n.s.a. logs the offices of diplomats of allied in the countries however when the allegations first came out chancellor angela merkel said quote if allegations were true it would be an unacceptable cold war style behavior but despite their clear view on spying a state spokesman for germany has come out and expressed a desire to get started with the trade negotiations. yeah but france is not willing to step down on this matter but right well the interesting thing is that france is appearing to take a tough stance on international spying but there's a bit of a contradiction going on right now because france was accused along with a number of other european countries by the belief in authorities of forbidding oblivion bound jet to travel through their airspace because they suspected edward
10:14 am
snowden was on board along with the bolivian president now the plane was held up more than fourteen hours result now this is been formally denied by the french authorities but if it is proven to be true it would mean france is putting on a tough economic front against buying but when it comes to peer politics it's quite another matter so a bit of a contradiction going on there do you think france world based one of three about the interesting thing is the second time that they've stalled these negotiations after initial worries that their culture industry would suffer as a result of the trade deal i managed to get their audiovisual sector excluded from that it was the midst of a long got his way on that one but considering the french economy fell into recession in the first quarter of this year and is expected to stagnate going forward does not in a financial position to stamp out a multi-billion dollar trade. let's wait and see how it's going to go thank you so
10:15 am

10:18 am
a very tense here as we're waiting to hear what the army are going to say this comes off the president said in his speech yesterday that he rejects all the all that the concessions that the open system forces one states put in place for example early elections or a constitution he also slammed to to make him and that the military set him telling him to put to the demands of the people otherwise they will intervene at the moment the army's been having a measured she told us all often need to do with this crisis the latest is that opposition figure mama don't but a guy who represents the protesters and also the form of the let's go position has been meeting with the army together with representatives of the church in the form of the pope himself and on us which is egypt's leading islamic directing all reports that members of the missing motherhood group the freedom and justice party may have been present at these meetings everyone is really holding their breath here waiting to hear what the result is of these of this key meeting the taking in the run up to the end of this forty eight hour deadline which is cool thirty pm
10:19 am
cairo time the president for his far has remained steadfast he says he wants to stay he is the gist of it to the gym it's a democratically elected president he's not going anywhere meanwhile protesters saying that they haven't seen any change in egypt he's unfit to. and they want him to leave so really we're seeing a massively divided egypt on the brink of every huge crisis. and for more on a gypsy political crisis we're now joined live by former as he opened diplomat dr mohamed sahnoun dr welcome to the program so the deadline for morsi expires this very hour what can we expect. well i think dr morsi provoking he's insisting to stay in power saying that agreement he's giving that it is that legal or constitutional and the legal system has to be respected but you must understand that that is the majority of the population of egypt that they have
10:20 am
rejected his his policy that it is one year in egypt conditions are deteriorating as you know for the last forty years have been destroyed by internal enemies systematically that the condition in different provinces the life condition . poverty is increasing extremely most of the young people have no droves there is no. political and social and economic policy by mr morsi i do think that moves to move provoking but i do think also that the egyptian people are very much and this is where organized the popular revolt against him i hope he will come to you since he will resign and i agree for an early election so you say the light conditions are deteriorating but what makes the protests is we believe life is going to change without morsi. where you will
10:21 am
you have to know that as egypt is a very important country and as i have told you that for the last forty years systematically destroyed from inside egypt have a big human potential and human resources highly educated population and there is also a lot of resources what egyptians demand is that a democratic system with a server nuti that if egypt become an independent state decides its own the full subordinate in economy can politics and so on then egypt it can change very quickly in the sixty's egypt is a very important country in the region if it was equal or even better than the economies in brazil and even to certain extent india in egypt can come back is really if mr morsi understand that and i don't think the muslim brothers have any policy the muslim brothers are the same line of the past or the g.m. they are for the world bank they are for that being an ally of united states they
10:22 am
are the one who are even united against syria you remember two weeks ago mr morsi he organized his son some group and he decided that it is to cut the relationship with syria but i think the population of egypt demands one subordinate of egypt second independent egypt was in the dependent policy economy carly and at the same time also rearranging the policy of the region we the people of the region and we hope that this lucian will continue to reach to this result and we will support and we are. our heart and our mind is with the egyptian population dr hassan very quickly if you can how stable will be if the military takes. the military is part of the egyptian population i don't think the people of egypt wants the military to take over most of the military and the soldiers are part of the population there is more than thirty million egyptians out of the ministry thing
10:23 am
everywhere in all provinces this is third smathers cousins brothers are the one who are demonstrating i don't think the military wants to take over but it is the military wants to keep and it is job is to keep the national security and also to defend to the border i don't think the egyptian people also will accept again another military regime what they want is that a fair democratic state and i think mr morsi have a chance if you even resigns or. later the transitional government to take over and then every election will be also for his party of the possibility and you have to show that in the statesman and egypt proper it to think and to accept the verdict of the egyptian people all right dr mohamed has unfolded your p f e o p and diplomat an expert on africa dr hathout thank you very much think the public on go the most is a mistruth house however much
